Ocean Flow Vignettes

This is a collection of visualizations of ocean flows created in support of NASA's 2020 sea level rise campaign. There are 5 regions of focus:
• central Pacific
• central Atlantic
• southeast Asia
• US east coast
• US west coast

The span of time shown in each visualization is about 10 months. The data used for each visualization comes from the ECCO-2 ocean model using data from 2010-01-15T00:12:58 to 2010-11-22T11:10:31. Each frame of the animation is approximately 2 hours apart.
